Mother of 4, grew up in the bay area, living in Phoenix now. My love for cooking grew after I got married, before that I had little interest in it and my menus consisted of baked chicken & spaghetti (with jar sauce)! :) Now nothing makes me happier then hearing my kids ask me to make a dish again that I just made for the first time, or asking for seconds! :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything! I can't narrow it down, but I do dislike recipes with a lot of ingredients that I normally would never use again and I avoid any bread recipes that I have to let rise and knee (seems way too time consuming!), I like simple!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with the kids on Thanksgiving!
My cooking triumphs
I just won the award at work for best potluck dishes!! :) All recipes I got from this website!
